A review of prevalence, reporting, and criteria for further investigation of incidental thyroid nodules reported on computed tomography scanning in an Irish general hospital

Brazil John , Sharma Jayant

The purpose of this study was to identify the prevalence of Incidental Thyroid Nodules (ITN’s) on Computed Tomography (CT) scans of the chest, assess variation in reporting by radiologists and to apply recent guidance to assess which nodules may require further investigation. We performed a retrospective review of 742 CT scans which included the chest performed in a regional hospital. Thyroid abnormalities were reported in 9.8% (n=76) of CT scans. There was consi...

Phenotypic variability within a family with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) syndrome

Ahmad Tariq , Sharma Jayant , Crowley Rachel , Kyithar Ma Pyeh

MEN1 is an autosomal dominant endocrine tumour syndrome, caused by inactivating mutations of the MEN1 tumour suppressor gene at 11q13 locus and characterised by occurrence of hyperparathyroidism, pancreatic tumours and pituitary adenomas. We describe a family with MEN1 syndrome. The index case was a 71-year-old man, referred to Endocrinology clinic in Midland Regional Hospital Portlaoise for hypercalcemia (calcium 3 mmol/l, phosphate 0.5 mmol/l, PTH 350 pg/ml, creatin...

Type 1 diabetes and challenges ahead

Batool Maria , Qadeer Abdul , Sharma Jayant , Kyithar Ma Pyeh

The incidence of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is rising. The demands of daily management, blood glucose variability and potential complications pose challenges in management of T1DM.The aim of this study was to determine the clinical and metabolic profiles of T1DM patients attending Midland Regional Hospital Portlaoise diabetes service in 2017 and to assess their microvascular and macrovascular complications.A retrospective anal...

An examination of the prevalence of IDF and ATPIII defined metabolic syndrome: towards population based screening

Waterhouse Deirdre , Sharma Jayant , Sheehan Frances , O’Shea Donal

Introduction: Despite the significant associated cardiovascular morbidity, as well as the significant economic implications, little consideration has been given towards population screening for the Metabolic Syndrome (MetS). Therefore, we wished to estimate the prevalence of MetS, using both the recently published IDF, as well as the previously defined Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III (ATPIII), criteria. Additionally, we hypothesised that simple, inexpen...

IDF but not ATPIII predicts the presence of ischaemic heart disease

Waterhouse Deirdre , Sharma Jayant , Beatty Sharon , Buckley Aidan

Introduction: The presence of Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) may be associated with increased cardiovascular risk. The International Diabetes Foundation (IDF) has recently published new diagnostic criteria for MetS. Thus, we sought to compare IDF-defined MetS, the previously defined Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III (ATPIII) and the European SCORE risk stratification model as predictors of the presence of Ischaemic Heart Disease (IHD) within an asymptomatic po...
